1977: the year Le Freak by Chic was released.
This song contains the refrain “Freak out! Le Freak c’est chic” which became an anthem in clubs worldwide.
Disco music exploded in the late 70s and the era had some awesome disco songs like Donna Summer‘s I Feel Love and Gloria Gaynor‘s I Will Survive.
Unfortunately at the time I was too little to go clubbing (I guess children and drug antics at New York’s Studio 54 really don’t go together…) and in the wrong country altogether (a small town in Italy cannot be compared to American towns like New York or Chicago).
Nothing better than disco to put you in a good mood
Yet, I did appreciate disco music even thought I was a child.
We talked about 1977: that’s the same year that the Bee Gees released Night Fever, the disco-tastic tune from the film Saturday Night’s Fever.

Chic had plenty of hit songs in the 70s in their own right: Good Times, Forbidden Lover, Everybody Dance, I Want Your Love… the list goes on.
70s disco music still influences what we listen and dance to today
Earth, Wind and Fire had great disco songs to dance to – Boogie Wonderland is an all time favourites.
Sylvester‘s You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real) and Patrick Hernandez‘s Born to Be Alive are as glittery as a disco ball.
K. C. & The Sunshine Band‘s Get Down Tonight and Kool & The Gang‘s Ladies Night are perfect examples of unadulterated funky disco.
70s disco music was a bit of a flash in the pan – the phenomenon started in the mid- to late 70s and ended in the early 80s.
Still, 70s disco music still influences what we listen and dance to today.
